because we have this forecast which is varied, which is very stable, we have had obama ahead by about the same margin all year in the states as you mentioned. i think sometimes pundits like to create the impression things are wildly changing every minute and states are coming into play and dropping out of play, when usually most voters are basing their votes on pretty solid fundamental things, the economy. >> rose: go ahead. so. >> so they are not flipping as much as maybe the conventional wisdom might -- i think i get a lot of grief because i frustrate narratives that are told by jowmpl lists that don't have a lot of frowning in objective reality, frankly. >> rose: the other argument is against you is that you are biased that you acknowledge you favor the president and that, therefore, that creeps. >> rose: the numbers you look at. >> well, wrote intend to vote this rear. >> rose: you have -- oh, really? >> yeah, i don't -- since i joined the times i haven't voted. >> rose: they don't let you vote if you join the times. >> no it is my addition, it doesn't mean i don't have political

of minutes reaching out to obama of voters and acknowledging that they have a lot of hope and change and in that video of him with his buddies in boca raton he talks about that obstacle that there are a lot of nice people that just really like him and so we can't push too hard on him we can't really savage him so to speak to the estimate what is one approach to poverty from the democrats that appeals to working-class white people? >> i think lots of approaches to poverty appeal. i think that white people support certain kinds of government intervention in certain kinds of jobs programs. the president's jobs bill is popular he just can't get it passed. i think like most people they are worried about the issue of dependency and people who don't pull their own weight. every culture i think it is a natural human we are social animals and we always had our eye off for that person but they are not helping to go out and kill the animal, the freeloader is something that i think is almost like an architect in our psyche as a social being that rely on each other and so, i think that we need jo

middle of this crisis. so it has changed it a little bit. but it's also given president obama a clans to look presidential, be presidential, be not only commander in chief, be comforter in chief, which is a big part of the job description for president. for romney, john, it's a little more difficult, because as you say, he's got no specific responsibilities when it comes to this. and so, he needs to be sympathetic. he needs to be involved. he needs to be concerned. and i think he's doing the right thing by not criticizing president obama, by not criticizing chris christie for this unity, show of unity with president obama, and just sticking to campaigning. >> he has to watch one of his top supporters and surrogates, chris christie, gushing over the president. that can't be completely easy, richard. >> well, and you know, what you saw from both these men yesterday is that good government was good politics. it was good politics both for president obama and for governor christie. i mean, governor christie is governor in a state that's overwhelmingly democratic. to have him there with the

as one of the central pieces of his premise to be elected and unseat president obama and, you know, this isn't just a sort of esew terric argument about philosophy here. there are real life impacts to it and we have seen the romney campaign promising big change, trying to reconfigure that position on the auto bailout. there is the same thread that runs between these two things. what happens when everything fails? what happens when the markets bottom out, there is no other source of funding out there, except for the federal government and the federal reserve. there is no other relief that you can find for the state other than federal dollars or federal technical expertise. what does government do in those situations? and that's not an abstract argument. that's very real. >> what makes the firemen jump into the burning building, the police officer go in the streets after midnight in a flood zone, the national guard deployed. it's duty, it's service and those are things you get with government. >> yes. >> and this kind of situation, that you can't always get out of the private sector

swing either way. but in the electoral college, it's clear that one guy is ahead, that president obama is ahead at the moment today. that, of course, can change in the next six days. but generally i think the popular vote and the electoral vote are going to go to the same person. if something happens over the next weekend, if as shawn was saying the republicans ground game is truly as much better now from 2008, then, you know, it can swing the other way. but i think at the end of the day those two numbers, the lorl vote and the popular vote are going to line up. >> great to have you both on the program, thank you. >>> sandy may have moved out of the northeast but obviously it's still wreaking havoc. these pictures are from early this morning over bricktown, new jersey, where a massive fire destroyed 14 homes two days ago and rekindled overnight. authorities believe natural gas lines are to blame. because of the damage in the area crews have not been able to get to the scene. natalie morales took a chopper ride over the destruction along the jersey shore and we will have an update from

the longevity in the middle. and even the career -- i think the, you know, my sense is that the obama administration was surprised at just how deeply ingrained certain -- i don't want to say pathology but certain approaches to the world were in various departments in dod and doj constitutional identity you can't change with an executive order. and i think that's -- so insofar as that's true, i think it's unrealistic to think any president can walk in the first day and say i'm going close guantanamo. but the flip side, i think that subjects that the answer is not on the executive branch side or at least not exclusively. the answer is more of interbranch mechanismnism. more of a dialogue and clearly contemplated role perhaps even open the transitional for congress, for court. to be clear has congress has a defined role. they confirm the president's nominee. it doesn't have to be a love fest. there can be a serious conversation about policy agendaing a things that are important not because it disqualifies a candidates but because congress wants to get on the record what the priorities ar
